What about requesting a "Provides: beryl-heliodor" from
gtk-window-decorator for the time being?
or better yet: a meta-package with the required Depends: upon
gtk-window-decorator --- this would help end users while at the same
time easing the upgrade path for the future should beryl's heliodor
deviate from compiz.

This is becoming of utmost importance as of lately.
If we want Debian to remain viable in the long run, we need to keep the
Archive free from legal issues.
That's actually the main difference among Debian and Ubuntu/Linspire and
other derivatives, and its strength :-)

Hopefully not. Upstreams tend to be quite responsive when it comes to
licensing issues.. we are all in the same boat after all.

Anyway, thank you for all your work, Shawn. It is much appreciated.
Go Debian! :-)
